Development of Corporate and Technological Automated Control Systems

OJSC Kubanenergo is a modern energy company, the effectiveness of which is inextricably linked with the development of automated systems of technological management (ASTM) enabling centralized control of the processes of power transmission and distribution processes.

The gradual development of ASTM is achieved in accordance with the Company's strategy in the field of information technology and the long-term investment program of the Company. 

Meeting the challenges of dispatcher-technological management, and automation of data collection and transmitting technological information from Company’s substations is an important condition for the Company’s successful development.   For organizing dispatcher, technological communications, and telecommunications, the Company uses the departmental communications and telecommunications network, which is reconstructed with a simultaneous transition to digital channels.  

The following work was performed in the reporting year in the branch of OJSC Kubanenergo Sochi Electrical Grids:

  • Tele-mechanization of 6 substations with voltage of 110 kV with the organization of digital communication and data transmission channels in the branch Sochi Electrical Grids and in Kuban Regional Dispatch Management *;
  • Tele-mechanization of 23 distribution points with voltage of 6-10 kV with the organization of telecommunication data transmission channels in the branch Sochi Electrical Grids;
  • construction of 178 km of FOCL, including:  94 km of 110 kV overhead lines, 36 km of cable ducts of OJSC Rostelecom, and 48 km jointly with 6-10 kV cable lines;
  • a corporate data transmission network, dispatch and technological communication channels were organized via FOCL-OL in the direction of Adler PGA, Dagomys PGA, Krasnaya Polyana PGA, 110 kV Bocharov Stream Substation, 110 kV Adler Substation, 110 kV Kudepsta Substation, 110 kV Yuzhnaya Substation, 110 kV Khosta Substation, 110 kV Kamenka Substation, 110 kV Kepsha Substation, 110 kV Matsesta Substation, 110 kV Vereshchaginskaya Substation, 110 kV Alpiyskaya Substation, 110 kV Rodnikovaya Substation, 110 kV Pasechnaya Substation, 110 kV Vishnevaya Substation.

The development and implementation of information technologies and telecommunications (ITT) contribute to the improvement of business activity, business process reengineering and opening of new opportunities for growth and development of the Company. OJSC Kubanenergo follows the path of development of an up-to-date management infrastructure through business process automation.

In order to determine the goals in the field of information technology and telecommunications and ways to achieve them, the Board of Directors of the Company approved the strategy of OJSC Kubanenergo in the field of information technology, automation and telecommunications for the period until 2016 (ITT Strategy) and the Road Map for the implementation of the ITT Strategy.

As part of the implementation of the Roadmap in 2014:

  • the transition of the automated document management system (ADMS) to an updated version of the platform was completed, ensuring full compatibility with the software used on user workstations, increased fault tolerance, performance, and reliability of the system;
  •  the module of secure document turnover in ADMS was finalized, enabling the use of electronic signatures for signing user actions in ADMS and handling documents constituting commercial and official secrets of OJSC Kubanenergo;
  • the introduction of a system of parallel accounting and preparation of consolidated financial statements according to international financial reporting standards of OJSC Kubanenergo was completed based on 1C: Enterprise 8.2;
  • work on the development of an automated accounting system of power transmission was completed, ensuring automation of the business process of formation of productive supply and accounting of applications and agreements to provide additional (non-tariff) services to businesses and individuals.

In 2015, work will continue on the development of an automated accounting system for electric power transmission, started in 2014. As part of the development of the automated system, it is planned to expand the functionality of the system, change the principle of formation of reporting forms, and integrate the system with the software package of 1C: Enterprise.

Works on the procurement of services for information infrastructure services in the interests of JSC Russian Grids and OJSC Kubanenergo.

In 2014, 12% of all computer equipment of OJSC Kubanenergo was upgraded. Additional work was performed on the organization of a customer service center in Sochi.

In 2015, it is planned to implement the following key projects:

  • completion of the development of an automated accounting system of electric power transmission;
  • commencement of work on the development of an automated system for certification of grid equipment, including expansion of the functionality of the system, and implementation of new functional modules, including those automating the process of calculating standard units, planning and accounting of equipment maintenance and repair activities.
